Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value Cable Top quality cable, with very robust outer insulation. Was in stock on a handy smaller drum (i hate having to buy 100M massive drums when you only need 10M for example) Very happy with the brilliant price. Installed the same day with no issues - everybody is delighted.

Is this cable ok for lighting in a summerhouse and what size ecstasy/mcb would I need for the consumer box

Asked by: Griper
Provided your consumer unit is inside the summer house then this size and type are used commonly for lighting circuits and would be applicable. With regards to the mcb please refer to the manufacturer of the unit. I believe that 5A is typically used for lighting radial circuits. What I can say is that the clipped direct current rating of this cable is 16 amps. The lowest current rating in table 4D5 (for flat cables) of the regulations is 10 amps. Please refer to a qualified electrician if in doubt.

Is this cable ok for wall sockets in a summerhouse

Asked by: Griper
This type of twin flat cable is commonly used for house wiring. However according to the wiring regulations 1.5mm² used for spurs must be individually fused. 2.5mm² is more generally used for power circuits. Please refer to the wiring regulations or a qualified electrician.
